Temperature data from a high density network of meteorological sensors installed within the Birmingham conurbation: low-cost, battery-powered WiFi Aginova Sentinel Micro air temperature sensors were operated at 73 stations between 2012-14.

These measurements have been made by the Birmingham Urban Climate Laboratory (BUCL) for the HiTemp (High Density Measurements within the Urban Environment) project in order to study the Birmingham Urban Heat Island (UHI)
